2. Teacher Flight Training Scholarship

As part of the AOPA You Can Fly program and thanks to the generosity of the Ray Foundation, up to 20 teachers will be awarded scholarships of $10,000 each to pursue their primary flight training certificate such as a private, sport or recreational pilot certificate.

To be eligible, a teacher must be a current, paid, full time employee of a school or school system and also must be preparing students for a future in aviation through curriculum or instruction. Additional eligibility requirements apply.

Scholarship recipients will be able to use the money for direct flight training expenses to pursue a primary pilot certificate. They must also complete a flight training milestone, achieving either solo or earning a primary pilot certificate, within one year of receiving a scholarship.

***Membership is required in order to qualify for an AOPA flight training scholarship. Please refer to the full list of eligibility requirements listed on the AOPA Scholarship webpage.
